About us

Sojourn Labs was started by a small group of Torontonians who selfishly wanted a clean planet for themselves and their descendants. Recognizing that conventional bicycles are not everyone's cup of tea, they set out to build a vehicle that could be operated safely and comfortably year-round in the streets of Toronto, much like a car. After much learning on the job, this small team produced a technological demonstrator (a prototype meant as a test of skill rather than something to be demonstrated) a year after arriving at the University of Toronto's Impact Centre. Media, including the BBC, the Toronto Star, the Space Channel, and the Discovery Channel caught wind of their efforts and soon the team at Sojourn Labs began speaking to the public. Encouraged by the enthusiastic response from people they engaged with, they wholeheartedly set out to finish what they had started and help build their part of a revitalized urban transportation network.
Your city, your ride.
